Fat Ass ... Not To Be Confused With Phat Ass

I was at my parents house the other day and a horrifying picture popped up on their computer.  The picture was taken of me a few days post pregnancy. On that paticular day I found an old pair of my Mom's  jean capri pants and decided to throw them on to see if they fit. Not only did they not fit, they were out of control tight.  I decided on that very day that the pants were going to be my tester pants to check my weigh loss progress. Almost every time I would go to my parents house I would put on the pants. They were always a little looser, but I was never extremly thrilled with how they fell on my hips. Yes, this may be because the darn capri's are straight up out of style, but I think the main reason that I was not impressed with the progress was because of my big arse. I remember one day impaticular, I stopped by their house on the way home from my training session. I had just got done working out for 2.5 hours straight, so I thought it would be the perfect moment to try on the tester pants. I put them on and I swear they were just as tight as they were the time before that I tried them on. I almost gave up hope. I was THIS close to giving up, but decided to hang in there. 70 pounds was  a buttload of weight to gain, and even a bigger buttload of work to get off.


So anyways, this past Saturday on July 4th I tried on the pants agiain and they just about fell off me. I have never been happier. I am still 7 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight, but I'm not complaining. I'm sure, soon enough I will get it off. I'm just happy that the amount of weight that I need to lose is in the single digits.


So here I am, being the brave blogger that I am ... sharing the fat girl pictures with you guys. I am also showing you the picture of when I was skinny. I posted the skinny picture in my bathroom and look at it each and every morning. It kind of gave me hope that one day I would be thin again.


All of you Mom's who are still hanging on to 7 pounds or 45 pounds of pregnancy weight, hang in there. It will come off soon enough. Believe me, I know the shitty feeling of running on the treadmill, with my butt jiggling 5 feet behind my body. It's so not fun, and it feels like IT WILL TAKE FOREVER. And yes, it will take forever, but that forever will come soon enough. Before you know it you will start feeling like yourself again. It has taken me 10 long months to get 63 pounds off, and I'm not even there yet. I keep on working out and trying to eat right and hopefully any day now I can start wearing my skinny jeans again.


p.s. If you get sick easily, you may not want to scroll down to view my fat ass pictures below ... and if you do scroll down, don't say I didn't warn you.




The day after I delivered. Weighing in at 180. To make matters even worse I'm holding a cake to make me look even more like a piggie. Look at Jonathan's face. He looks terrified, I think he's afraid that I'm going to eat him alive.

10 months later with the tester/ugly/out of style/I hate you capri pants on. You really can't tell in this picture, but they really are falling off. They were so big that my butt crack would show when I walked, lucky you I decided to refrained from posting the ass crack pic.

I swear Lane our baby weight stories have been so similar it makes me laugh. I too had a pair of my moms pants that I used to "measure" my weight lose. I have a pic of myself pre-baby on the beach that I thought I was fat in and would give anything to look like that now. However I had 2lbs on you. I cashed in at 182 when I gave birth to Daniel. Being less than 20lbs away from 200 made me feel SO good. But babe you look great, keep it up missy!! By the way I miss you when can we hang out? Ok this is an extrememly long comment, gonna go now, peace!

Lane, I thought you were beautiful preggers. You have always been beautiful. Great job getting rid of those extra pounds. I admire you , and I haven't even been pregnant yet. Pathetic on my part. Good Luck with those last few, hang in there!

Thanks for the post Lane! I'm totally feeling like a fatty and really needed to hear that I will loose the weight and be a hot mommy like you :)

Lane... you look so skinny in that picture Ashley posted on her blog of you guys exercising! WAY TO GO... i needed the motivation to lose my fibroid weight... hehe! I will be right there with you and Ashley with the SAHM status... i might work PRN to keep my nursing license though. I don't think we will have little ones until we are back in the states though. Work is over-rated but when you have no friends in a foreign country... it gets really really boring. It's only part time so it should fill some of my time.
